Reviews for Taleon Imperial Hotel
The best part of the hotel was the prearrival, and the grandness of the room itself.... and that's when it started fo fall apart.... On the plus side, the concierge was top notch - very fast in responding, good suggestions, willing to do what ever it took. And the service at the Taleon restaurant was among the best we had (probably better than our diner at the Four Seasons Percorso) On the negative sides: We had several requests of the reception which were never fulfilled. We were not sure if the person we asked did not execute, or if the person they delegated to did not: example 1) disengage the security light I had erroneously turned on 2) bring a toothbrush to the room 3) Send housecleaning to the room (one day the room did not get cleaned..... ) While the room was gorgeous, the bathroom, perhaps from the tub, had a distinct sewer smell. I am used to this from time to time in this part of the world, but this was very pronounced, more than other public toilets I had used in palaces. Also another peculiarity I found is that it was never clear to me who was the manager on site. Usually with 4+ star hotels, it is clear, even if the manager does not personally introduce themselves. Instead, it seemed liked there were often very young employees and I left wondering if perhaps they were not experienced or assertive enough to get things done. Good location and all, (and good gym!) this would not be enough to bring me back.

Friendly staff helped to make for a memorable stay in this grand hotel. Situated on the corner of Nevsky Prospekt, close to the Hermitage Museum, its central location makes it convenient for enjoying the sights, tastes and sounds of St Petersburg. Its elegant interior includes an opulent dining room (with talented singer when we dined there), a breakfast room at the base of an impressive atrium, well appointed bedrooms, and on the top floor a generously sized swimming pool and well equipped gym.

A week at this hotel, in the centre of St Petersburg, was pure delight. Our suite was beautifully appointed, and discretely serviced. The concierge spoke perfect English and nothing was a trouble. The hotel dining room was elegant, and the food was superb. The food and wine were not expensive. All of the staff were polite, friendly and efficient. The rooftop pool was great, and the spa experience (massage and facial) first rate. Staying there was a huge privilege! Our room was very quiet.

... nevertheless a fabulous, centrally located hotel in this beautiful city! My room was in fact a suite, with lobby, huge, luxurious bathroom (great shower, once Iād worked out how to use It!), sitting area, and very comfortable bedroom, and I even had access to an internal outside terrace area, though Iād probably have preferred a *normal* room with a canal view. My only problem was finding my way around the hotel and getting back to my rooms - the layout is a bit confusing in such a large old building! I stayed here while on a four-night group tour and thoroughly enjoyed my stay. Breakfasts in the atrium were delicious with a very wide choice, including dishes cooked to order if required. We ate in the sixth-floor restaurant on three nights - service was excellent, and the food well cooked if a little bland - though I guess the fixed menu had to cater to everyone in the group. I agree with other reviewers that in-room tea/coffee-making facilities would have been nice, but had no problem with the wifi. The staff - reception, waiting, chambermaid, doormen - were all friendly and helpful. The location was perfect - with just a little free time from group activities it was so easy to just wander around, visit a church, go souvenir shopping, .....
